Auction Result
BI
KPM Berlin was founded by King Frederick II, King of Prussia in 1751. Today, the tableware used by the German government for the official dinner party is manufactured here. The original painting of this plaque is executed by François Boucher from Rococo style, which was ordered by Madame de Pompadour for decoration for her cabinet de toilette. KPM, especially for porcelain plaque, the method of fixing the paint on top of porcelain and firing at least 10 times is recognized as the best technique at the time especially the larges-scaled plaque such as this work, is impossible to reproduce today. This lot, which is about 70 cm long, is one of the largest plaque.
